Watchdrawer

Introduced in 2016, this Laurent Galet Traveller Boréal* introduced an update to the Galet Traveller series three years after its conception in 2013. Reimagining the dial in a minimalist fashion, the luminous sector dial against a black backdrop is a decidedly modern take on the Laurent Ferrier aesthetic.

ORIGINS IN MOTOR RACING

Laurent Ferrier: “I had been racing in Le Mans with my friend François Sérvanin between 1974 and 1981, and in 1979 we managed to get third place. After this race, François had expressed an interest in Patek Philippe, suggesting that he had heard it was a great brand, so I gifted him a Nautilus with the case-back engraved with 24hr Le Mans, 1979. We had spoken over a very many years about starting a business together, and as François was retiring, he had the money to invest, so we went for it. As he wasn’t a collector or connoisseur, he gave me carte blanche in terms of the approach and design. It was of absolute importance, in my mind, that we develop a calibre from scratch, so myself and my son Christian, set about making that happen.”
